What happened to Bronze Ez (Ezee)?
"I've bought Canthaxanthin here for years and was wondering what happened to Bronze Ez?
I noticed they changed the name to Bronze Ezee and shortly thereafter you replaced it with 'Bronze Organic'. What is the backstory? Bronze Organic is the best, by the way."
Thank you. We've always strived to offer only the very best and believe Bronze Orgainc to be the ultra-premium Canthaxanthin of choice today.
While searching worldwide for the darkest, highest quality and maximum potency Canthaxanthin available anywhere, Bronze Organic was born. During our research and development we discovered something else, too; Several lesser brands out there were tested and revealed to contain only a fraction of the stated amount, a mere 3-5mg of Canthaxanthin in a couple of cases... so, let the buyer beware!
Bottom line, Bronze Organic Canthaxanthin sets a new, state-of-the-art standard. It's the "one cap per meal" Real McCoy, rigorously tested and certified to deliver guaranteed maximum levels of pure, ultra-premium 10:1 "Canthaxanthin Supreme". It's the Gold Standard, Bronze Organic in the brushed gold label.
'Weight Rack Challenge' online game
"I can't locate your fun weight rack game. We used to play it all the time. Where did it go?"
We still host it online, here, but you'll need to access it from Internet Explorer as it was coded specifically for that browser. Enjoy!
eNewsletter from MASS
"I'm on AOL and having problems getting newsletters I subscribe to, including yours. Do you post it online? I'm thinking of switching my subscriptions to a new account. Is this effective?"
This is becoming more of a problem as mail from online merchants - including very important documents at times - are being treated by default as spam by overly-aggressive filters at some providers. Apparently, AOL and Comcast in particular. Switching your account might help, however, you have every right to insist your current provider deliver what you want and need. If you suspect your ISP is filtering out your newsletter subscriptions, a direct call or email to complain often provides immediate results. If you ever find mail you wish to receive from us or others in your bulk folder, mark it "not spam" and add the sending email address to your "buddy", "safe", "approved" or "trusted sender" list. This will ensure your eNewsletter and important customer service notices, receipts, etc. are not mistakenly blocked. We despise unsolicated spam as much as anyone, but for desired and needed mailings to be treated as such is an injustice. By the way, we do post our eNewsletter online. Click here for the latest issue, then bookmark the page and refresh it when checking for each new issue.
Free Muscle T-Shirt
"Do you still offer the muscle mass t-shirts? That was a sharp, attention drawing shirt."
Yes, we still have the Muscle MASS T-Shirts in the now classic design. Jeff "the environmentally friendly screen printer" Hammond has been churning them out for sixteen years now and we can safely say they continue to draw eyes far and wide, the world over... Click the link above to get yours.
Easy steps to self improvement
"Is there a listing of all the nutrition facts information reports on the muscle mass website? I had several bookmarked, but my browser crashed and erased them."
We've got you covered. Save this page for direct access to all of the current (and future) reports.
Is it OK to mix A-AKG and Creatine?
"Have you seen the powder with arginine alpha-ketoglutarate like your Nitro AKG and NO2, but also has creatine and stimulants mixed in? I thought using creatine with stims and A-AKG was a bad idea?"
First, be aware that simple powder versions (and most tablets) of A-AKG are a hoodwink, with or without creatine. A plain mix is NOT the legitimate, bonded A-AKG compound found in Nitro AKG.
Further, these items don't incorporate Patented pH and Sustained Release Delivery. Look, anyone can mix plain L-Arginine and Alpha-Ketoglutarate powder together and - technically - call it "A-AKG".
If only it were so easy as that to produce the real compound and get the great Nitro AKG results.
However, after saturating Nitro AKG (or the other, overpriced but legit A-AKG you mentioned) it is perfectly fine and good to add Kre-Alkalyn or Kre-Anabolyn to your stack. You'll love the synergistic effects.

Big pecs, delts and traps
"What are the best weight training exercises to increase pec, delt and trap size?"
Here you go-
Pecs: Weighted Dips
Delts: Military Press
Traps: Deadlifts, Shrugs
All of the above exercises tie-in pecs, delts and traps very effectively. Work limited sets of these, work `em heavy and to complete failure, eat and drink high protein and you'll be needing new shirts soon!
"I have excess fat around my navel, although my bodyfat % is low. I have increased cardio to 60 minutes and have seen great improvements everywhere except my bellybutton! Any advice besides liposuction? I use your fat burner and follow a low carb diet, can you help me?"
Yes. Such problem areas are not uncommon and are "the last to go", so to speak. For truly effective spot reduction of any such problem area, use Thiomax.
"To build muscle mass, how many raw eggs should I drink a day and at what times of the day?"
Please, don't ever consume raw eggs. While it was done in the "good old days" before salmonelia was such a high risk factor, it is without question a no-no today.
If you were to contract salmonelia, it could potentially kill you. At the very least, it will make you extremely sick and put you in great pain for weeks on end.
Read up on our 1st quality Mass Pro Whey Protein and you'll find it a much better way to boost protein intake, all around, including price per gram. Below you'll find extensive information on protein requirements under the heading "Protein: How much is enough?".
"What can you tell me about digestive enzymes? My diet coach suggested they may help me to better absorb the foods I eat, protein in particular, since I'm on a high protein diet."
No question about it, a high quality full spectrum formula such as the Active Enzyme Blend found in ALKAPLEX Green Plus can deliver improvements for most everyone. For those with digestive limitations, the positive impact to overall health, fitness and well-being can be astounding. Check out the following well researched report for all the facts on digestive enzymes.
How to maximize your human growth hormone level
"What is the best way to take Gamma GH for maximum results?"
Gamma GH is a breeze to take and works great at increasing natural human growth hormone release. This compound displays a vast profile of athletic, physique and life enhancement benefits.
The best time to take Gamma GH is just before bed on an empty stomach. Simply mix the pure powder in a small amount of water and drink. Gamma GH should be taken sublingually (dissolved under the tongue) to insure absorption if you have eaten within two hours before administration.
Clinical trials show a 5 gram dose of Gamma GH to have the greatest impact on human growth hormone release (550% HGH increases within 90 minutes). It is recommended that you start out with a 1-2 gram dose and work up to the five gram level over a week or two. This is because Gamma GH has a very noticeable effect. You can literally "feel" it working within just a few minutes by way of a "tingling" sensation at your nerve endings and through the calming, relaxing effect it exerts.
Supplements for Golf
"I'm a 43 year old golf professional who is developing a bit of a spare tire around the middle and arthritis in the toes. I also smoke, and hate every minute of it. What do you recommend in the way of supplements to help shed the gut, regain strength/mobility and get me back to a more healthy lifestyle? Do you ship overseas and is there any problems with importing these items?"
First, we ship overseas daily and welcome your business.
For arthritis and joint health, we can not recommend a combo of Glucosamine Chondroitin and Ultimate Omega Cod Liver Oil highly enough. Your joints will feel years younger after a few months use. We carry both premium grade Double Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin and Ultimate Omega at a great price. As a side note, Ultimate Omega is hands-down the best tasting Cod Liver Oil on the planet. Via a Patented process, 100% of the "fish" taste is removed. Amazingly good tasting, and amazingly good for you.
For very noticeable strength gains and a harder physique, add our Patented Kre-Alkalyn Creatine or Kre-Anabolyn to the above stack. For added fat loss, endurance and mental focus, use Burn It Up! capsules.
Obviously, we would encourage you to quit smoking. It is no easy battle, but average Joes and Janes quit, and stay quit, everyday. After 72 hours the nicotine is out of the bloodstream and it is a mental battle from that point on. Bite the bullet, and quit cold turkey is our advice.
"I have a question about my biceps and triceps. I work 4 exercises for each and do 3 sets of 4-8 reps. When I finish my last set should I do 1 light set of 10-15 reps to get that last pump? I'm having a hard time adding size to my arms."
Frankly, you are more than likely overtraining arms. The last thing you need is more sets. DROP two movements for both biceps and triceps, cut back to two full-bore sets and within weeks you're sure to see gains return. See, the arms are a small muscle group compared to your quads, chest and back. Plus, they are worked indirectly when you bench, row, etc. Limited sets + 110% intensity = big arms!
By the way, "pump" has nothing to do with growth. Sure, it feels good and swells the muscle, but in reality it is nothing more that the muscle being filled with blood. Work a handful of sets to total muscular failure, eat and drink high protein and you'll do great!
Protein: How much is enough?
"To help gain muscle, how many grams of protein should I be taking in each day? Right now I weigh 175 lbs and I would like to weigh 190."
For serious fitness training, the evidence supporting a daily protein intake in the range of 1.5 to 2 grams per pound of bodyweight is overwhelming. At 175 pounds, you should aim for a daily intake of around 300 grams of quality protein. You can later adjust this amount up or down as your goals / gains dictate. To reach this level, each meal should be focused around hearty portions of your favorite high protein foods like steak and other beef cuts, fish and seafood, chicken and eggs (toss out 1/2 the yokes to lower fat content).
To enable you to keep exact tabs on protein content, you'll want to grab a copy of The Complete Book Of Food Counts from our secure order page. This book is a must-have reference. Otherwise, reaching your daily protein goals is guesswork. Like we say- "Knowledge is Power".
Post-workout protein intake is crucial. Via the workout stimulus, what is called the "golden window" opens. During this time, your muscle cells, quite literally, open up fully for a short time and seek to soak up protein like a sponge does water. In order to take full advantage of this opportunity to greatly accelerate the growth and repair of your muscle tissue a legitimate, quickly assimilated protein powder such as Advanced MASS PRO should be employed. High protein foods are not suitable in this instance as they do not digest fast enough.
Also of note is the fact that a serving or two of MASS PRO between meals will help you reach your daily protein requirements without having to stuff yourself at the table. It has been said many times; "it is much easier to drink rather than eat a high protein diet". Two scoops of Mass Pro Whey Protein mixed into 3 cups of organic milk quickly yields a full 75 grams of muscle building protein for your hungry muscle tissue and is typically less expensive gram for gram verses preparing time-consuming high protein foods.
If I could only use one supplement...
"Adaptogen N has worked wonders for me! Matter of fact, if I could only use one supplement I would pick it without hesitation. Much more effective than Tribestan, which I was using before. I don't know who designed it, but give them my thanks on a job well done."
Thank you, we appreciate your high praise! If you look closely at the Adaptogen N formulation you'll see that each of the five compounds has both a specific function in and of itself while also complimenting the "whole" to an extraordinary level. Not to knock good quality Tribulus only items, but they only address a small portion of what Adaptogen N does. The brainchild behind the formula is John Drake, our company founder by the way.
Can my babe Burn it Up?
"My wife is considering a prescription diet pill with listed side-effects that fill two pages. I'm against it and have asked her to try your thermo first. It is OK for the ladies, right? I've also read that yohimbe is effective for "love handle" weight loss. Is this true?"
You've done your homework. Burn It Up! is perfectly suited for both women (except when pregnant or lactating) and men. It is also true that research shows Yohimbe Extract to be effective at metabolizing dense "brown fat". Good for love, and love handles it is said.
Put me in the game, Coach!
"Is 16 too early to start weight training? Which exercises should I do? Best supplements?"
The "rule of thumb" is to be at least 14. Gains come fast and steady if you apply yourself during your teens, so you really are at the perfect age to start weight training. Get your physician's OK, and go for it! Master the big 3 compound movements (squat, deadlift, bench) first and you'll make far fewer mistakes down the road, not to mention be bigger and stronger before you know it.
Quality supplements can greatly speed your progress. Start with a legit protein shake like MASS PRO following all workouts along with a Multi-Life vitamin after your high protein breakfast and dinner and you'll be well on your way. For a quick course of most valuable tips and insights that really work, grab a copy of the Fast Mass report available on the secure order page. It will be the best $7.50 you'll ever spend. Best of luck!
